How to get rid of the tired judgment

An interesting speaker profile surfaced on a television program about the state of justice.

One of the guests was convicted in the judiciary that emerged with the September 12 coup.

I was tried and convicted on February 28th.

Another was pursued and imprisoned by FETO judges.

Another guest complained about the post-FETO justice system.

Not everyone was accused of theft, robbery, audacity, or violence.

We all had different opinions, but we experienced the same victimization.

We can call it “politicized judicial victimization.”


The discussion program was extremely remarkable in that it showed that different people were convicted on the same grounds in different years, in different governments and in different courts.

But what made the program sterile was that everyone blamed the government that judged it at the time.

What we missed, however, was that the justice system was always politicized in different governments, falling under the influence of governments and thereby producing victims.

What we had to discuss was: “How can the judiciary work fairly without being politicized and influenced by governments?”

We couldn’t. We still can’t.

Everyone blames the AKP government, which is now under the influence of the judiciary.

Not long ago, February 28 players…

Before that, the cogeneration period…

Before that, we blamed the government of 12 September…

I could explain the vicious circle, right?

However, we need groundbreaking legal movements and understandings that will lead us out of this maelstrom.


Yesterday, when the verdict on the defendants in the case in which Osman Kavala was tried was announced, I saw that people were making the same arguments again.

Everyone is talking about the fact that the judiciary is under the influence of political power and that the judge is the AK candidate.

We all know the increasingly insoluble malfunctions, problems and strange decisions in the justice system.

I agree with most of these criticisms.

The Osman Kavala case has become so complex that it will be talked about for many years to come.

Not being a lawyer, I don’t feel entitled to say much about the contents of the file.


No matter how many attorneys I spoke to who examined these files, they told me they found the prosecution weak and the evidence problematic.

In fact, Kürşat Bektaş, one of the judges handling the case, disagreed with the decision and the dissenting opinion he wrote confirms these lawyers:

“…I am of the opinion that the acquittal of the imprisoned defendant Osman Kavala and the release of the other defendants should not be arrested, since there is no other concrete, conclusive and convincing evidence, far from any doubt, sufficient that the accused will be punished for the crimes against them.”

If I agree with an opinion on the case, I agree with the opinion of judge Kürşat Bektaş.

If one of the judges had supported this view, there would have been no conviction. What we mean by sentencing is an aggravated life sentence replaced by the death penalty. It’s really hard.


There are dozens of lawyers discussing the substance of the case.

However, I expect these lawyers to consider how to fix this system that has been tiring for years.

How do we balance the scales of the judiciary, which will never change even if the powers change?

How do we prevent the judiciary from becoming politicized?

Let’s discuss that too. Believe me, it can get better results.

1. Don’t add WhatsApp groups, bulk message lists and email groups without someone’s permission.

2. Do not call or direct message people outside of reasonable hours.

3. Imagine someone you are calling for the first time.

4. Don’t address someone you haven’t met in person as “you,” even on social media.

5. Just because you have the right to send a direct message to a writer, artist, politician, or opinion leader, don’t address them as your comrades and don’t criticize them if they don’t reply to you.

6. Even though you don’t share someone’s opinion and will make critical comments, don’t cross the line of politeness.

7. If the person whose mobile phone you called does not answer after three rings, it means that they are not available, do not keep it ringing.

8. If someone you call doesn’t answer the first time, try introducing yourself first by texting them instead of calling them ten more times.

9. Do not speak loudly by turning on your mobile phone speaker and camera in public meeting vehicles, on the street or in crowded places.

10. Gym, restaurant, hotel, etc. When recording videos and photos in public areas, be careful not to be seen by others.

11. On TV shows, don’t text a guest and say, “Forward this to the other guest.” Nobody is your messenger.

12. Do not think that it is obligatory to give your opinion on everything that has become TT, sometimes try to keep calm.

13. Don’t go up to people you know and take a selfie right away, get permission first.

14. Death, marriage, circumcision, birthday, visit, meal, travel, new pajama purchase… So don’t share photos of every moment you live. Nobody wants to know anything about your private life.

15. If you quoted someone, mention their name in your post, don’t write it as your own opinion.
